OMG, what do you make of this… to save a dino-industry (newspapers), the FCC wants to, huh,

SpaceyG: Over the weekend you established a standard on PP for people to be able to make comments. Indeed, one has to be a woman, in your view, to comment on womens issues.

As a result, since you do not own a TV station or a newspaper, you should be quiet. Of course, your own rules don’t apply to you, so I’m sure you don’t care.

Are you retarded only on Tuesdays Rogue, or is it a life thing with you?

Can a transvestite comment on both men’s and women’s issues?

SpaceyG November 13, 2007 at 2:26 pm

Sure Loyalty. Have at it.

SpaceyG: Can you go five minutes without calling people names? No, don’t answer….it’s already evident you can’t. Very progressive!

So you believe men can’t comment on women’s issues but you can comment on everything? Of course! Genius!

By far the worst poster on PP. Revoke the front page access.

Doug Deal November 13, 2007 at 5:45 pm

A large number of her posts amount to calling Southerners stupid, ignorant, inbred or something else equally insulting, but the only thing I would support revoking her is due to her inability to write anything coherent more than 10 percent of the time. This, coincidentally, is equal to her percentage of on-topic Georgia related posts.

Is Georgia so devoid of liberal posters that this is the best Erick could get? Can someone move to have someone with a reasonable ability to form thoughts in English, like griftdrift, replace her on the front page? (I would even support GHT or federalist over her. At least they are able to write clearly.)

Doug Deal: I fully support your comments. Further, SpaceyG can’t go five minutes without using insulting language to those who would dare to disagree with her calling them “retarded” and “trolls.” Okay, maybe that’s just me that she calls that (grin).

She is not funny. She is not topical. She needs to go…or fix her problems. That, though, seems like an impossible task when she actually believes she generates the majority of “ad hits” for PP.

The post is about the FCC fellas, not Spacey, who’s actually whip smart & personable, and apparantly unlike some others here, has a sense of self-depricating humor. Laugh at yourselves once in a while, guys…you’ll be better people for it.

Now back to the FCC.

Doug Deal November 14, 2007 at 9:50 am

Track,

It is not self depricating to insult and look down upon others.

Rogue109 November 14, 2007 at 10:10 am

SpaceyG is whip smart? OK, but she doesn’t show it here.

SpaceyG is personable? OK, but she is rude and insulting every day here.

SpaceyG has self-depricating humor? OK, that must be why she can’t take any criticism and lashes out against anyone who would dare to disagree with her.

No content, no humor, no Georgia interest: the SpaceyG legacy.

Spacey’s got some spunk. More power to her.
Well, back to the FCC. How long until Cox starts trying to buy up the top local blogs like PP? And how would that change the content?

And when a newspaper buys a local tv station, how much does it pay to be able to broadcast on the public’s airwaves? Zilch. If the FCC is going to sell out to the biggies like Tribune and Cox, at least charge them at least a reasonable fee. And no one wins when your TV station owner is a big corporation headquartered 1000 miles away. Local hard news coverage drops immediately, and the storie on Britney and Paris rise exponentially.

Doug Deal November 14, 2007 at 2:07 pm

I don’t know how relevant local news really is. I haven’t watched local or national evening news on a broadcast channel in almost 20 years. Most people I know watch only rarely.

The internet is not a (practical) limited resource, so no matter how much buy in the networks have, something else would spring up as somewhere else if users get tired of the ads, editorial content or poor service.

Eventually the airwaves will be silenced of television and radio signals and it will all just be data for almost any purpose under the sun. So, why care so much about this dinosaur in it’s last throws.
